    Hi guys, noticed a post where people mention some standard 328i's achieving around 207hp on rolling roads, so figured i'd get mine checked out. Having difficulty gettin hold of somewhere that does these though.
    About how much do people take to test your car and can any1 recommend sumwhere around or close to South West London?
    Cheers,
    Baz.

    mine cost about £50 for an hours session on the rolling road but expect to pay more due to where you are, rolling road results have to be taken with a pinch of salt, mine was done on a dyno dynamics rolling road which is one of the best set ups around, all external tempertues ect are inputed so you get as true as reading as possible, bare in mind though that on the open road you have the speed of the air being forced into your engine ,mine didnt have a fan blowing on the engine ! so in that respect isnt as accurate as others.
